Recall Alert: 2014 Ford Flex, 2009-2014 F-150

2014FordFlexRecall

Vehicles Affected: More than 113,000 model-year 2014 Ford Flex SUVs manufactured between March 1 and May 31 at the Oakville Assembly Plant in Ontario, 2014 F-150 pickup trucks manufactured between March 1 and May 31 at the Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan, 2014 F-150 pickup trucks manufactured between March 1 and May 31 at the Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri, and 2009-14 F-150 pickup trucks serviced with a suspect seat track assembly between Feb. 17 and Oct. 31

The Problem: A passenger seat sensing issue could result in non-deployment of the passenger-side airbag in certain frontal crashes if an adult is in the passenger seat, increasing the risk of an injury. Ford said it is unaware of any accidents or injuries related to the issue.

The Fix: Ford will notify owners, and dealers will widen the gap between the manual seat frame seat track assembly, then calibrate the seat occupant classification system for free. The automaker has not yet announced a notification schedule.

Recall Alert: 2014 Ford F-150

2014FordF-150Recall

Vehicles Affected: More than 600 model-year 2014 Ford F-150 pickup trucks manufactured between March 1 and March 13 at the automaker's Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan, and between March 3 and March 13 at the Kansas City Assembly Plant in Missouri

The Problem: A brake pedal position switch may be incorrectly adjusted, possibly resulting in a delay or a non-illumination of the brake lights when the brake pedal is depressed, increasing the risk of an accident. Ford said it is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to the condition.

The Fix: Ford will notify owners, and dealers will remove and reinstall the brake pedal position switch for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Ford at 866-436-7332 for more info. The automaker noted that additional brake pressure may be necessary to disengage the cruise-control system, so customers are advised not to use cruise control until the vehicle is repaired. The cruise-control system off switch on the steering wheel will continue to disengage the system, Ford said.

Top 10 Best-Selling Cars: October 2014

IMG_4397

A rash of airbag recalls in October hasn't deterred car shoppers. Sales from seven largest automakers gained 5.8 percent in October, leading to an annualized rate that should top 16 million cars for the eighth month in a row. Among the top 10 sellers, two new compacts enter the list — the Toyota Corolla and the Chevrolet Cruze. The Ford Fusion and Toyota RAV4, despite sales increases, are off.

Mammoth gains from its Jeep and Ram divisions lifted Fiat Chrysler Automobiles up 21.7 percent to lead the Big Seven in sales gains. The Ram pickup gained 33.5 percent despite no sizeable change in incentives over the year-ago month, and that was versus a pretty good October 2013. It's possible the pickup snatched a number of truck shoppers who didn't want to buy the outgoing Ford F-150. September's strong housing starts, which typically feed pickup sales, provided a boost, too. F-Series sales slipped as truck shoppers await the redesigned 2015 F-150, which arrives later this year, but the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra combined to gain 10.8 percent.

 Here are the top 10 best-selling cars in October:
